The August Edit

9th Aug 2023

Open fire on wooden decking with marshmallows ready to roast

There’s a subtle shift in the air this month; the days are slowly growing shorter and evenings are progressively cooler, leaving us with an undeniable desire to bask in the sun's warmth whilst we still can. Recreating that blissful holiday feeling in your garden is easy with the help of Mediterranean-inspired furniture and other accessories which transport you back to sunnier climes. August is also the perfect time to tend to your plants before the harvest season begins. Prune wisteria, lift and pot up rooted strawberry runners, deadhead flowering foliage and collect seeds. Looking to stretch the season out a little longer? Weather permitting(!), evenings are best spent cosying up in the garden, accompanied by a crackling firepit and enchanting lanterns, savouring the last of those balmy summer days.
